Alexander Gerchik is a successful trader with over 23 years of experience. Officially recognized as the safest trader by the Wall Street Warriors is a documentary and reality TV series (2006) that details the lives of various Wall Street entrepreneurs. Alexander's biography exemplifies the success story of an immigrant who has conquered Wall Street and earned international recognition in the financial market industry as a trader with no losing months in his 20 years of trading.

His path began in 1993, when Alexander emigrated to New York. After moving, he grabbed for any job. Persistence and desire to achieve financial independence forced him to do what few people would dare to. For example, start trading. It was a deliberate choice because in the United States it is an understandable and widespread income guarantee activity. Initially, he worked as a taxi driver to pay for a four-month course in trading and obtain a license - the key to Wall Street. This allowed him to trade professionally, after which everything changed. His career as a day trader began at World Co. Started with $400 capital.

Today his professionalism is confirmed by American licenses 7,55 and 63 series and a Russian license as a market participant. Anyone who knows the context will immediately understand what this means.

In 2008, Alexander clearly realized that he wanted to teach trading, so he rented and equipped the first office in Tula with his own money. At first he taught students for free and even gave them his own money for management. After 7 years, the training center has become the largest in Eastern Europe. Today it has over 21,000 students.

Everyone has a chance to turn trading into their job and devote all their free time to it, but this is not the only way. Trading on the stock exchange can become just a hobby. But, unlike collecting cars, such a hobby will not take away money, but bring it in. Alexander recommends in training materials to consider the exchange both as the main type of activity and as a means of additional earnings - it all depends on your approach to business.
